The Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) has made special arrangements for travelers to enroll in the TSA Pre✓® program starting Monday, October 19 through Friday, October 23, 2015 at the Santa Barbara Airport Airline Terminal.
This TSA Pre✓® program allows participating flyers to skip the long lines and speed through airport screening by leaving on their shoes, light jackets and belts and leaving laptops and compliant liquids in carry-on bags. Over 120 airports have dedicated TSA Pre✓® lanes and 11 airlines participate in the program.
Passengers throughout the region can pre-enroll and schedule an appointment by clicking here. *Please note: Make sure you select “Santa Barbara” as your location during the enrollment process. When you type in Santa Barbara or your zip code a menu will appear with Santa Barbara Airport at the top of the list.
IMPORTANT! On the day of your appointment, please come to the Santa Barbara Airline Terminal, 500 James Fowler Road, Santa Barbara, CA 93117. You will complete the process onsite by being fingerprinted and showing identification that provides proof of citizenship and a photo ID. If you have a passport, that is all you will need to bring. If you do not have a passport, a current “unexpired” Driver License AND “valid proof of citizenship,” such as an original or certified copy of your birth certificate will be required. Please visit TSA.gov for a complete list of acceptable required documents.
TSA Pre✓® application fee is $85, and should be paid onsite by credit card, money order, company check, or certified/cashier’s check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted. That’s just $17/year to minimize the hassle and restore some of the joys of travel! Once approved, you will be given a Known Traveler Number or KTN, which will be included on all future boarding passes, on any airline, at any participating airports.
We look forward to bringing you this program. Santa Barbara Airport, the “easy come, easy go” airport.
